Clerk (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – July 30, 2013
The managers do not know how to communicate well. Some of them are awesome and not at fault for all of the messed up stuff going on in that plant, but the ones who are running the show are ridiculous. They have no care for you as a person in any way, all you are to them is a body on the floor getting their mail out. LUNDY POST OFFICE as a job is HORRIBLE for contract employees. NO BENEFITS at all for Casual Mailhandlers and only after a year of employment for PSE Clerk if you even make it past a year because they never extend anyone. They treat you like pure garbage and over work you EVERYDAY! The only benefit you have is ANNUAL LEAVE and they won't even approve you to use it or approve any vacation time as LWOP (leave without pay). Not to mention MANDATORY work on ALL holidays and the weekend before a holiday! The best part of the job is getting to go on break or lunch to sit down and get away from all of the stress and rude supervisors.
Pay and benefits are above average. Toxic work enviroment.
Clerk (Current Employee) – Waterville, ME – October 18, 2017
In the clerk craft you would sort mail in the early morning. Load and unload trucks full of mail. Distribute to the carriers for delivery. Handle cash and accountable mail at the counter. Maintain automated machinery. Sort packages and scan them properly.
Toxic work enviroment, problem managers are moved around and not fired.
Management regularly engages in fraud and work place harassment
City Carrier Assistant (Current Employee) – Evanston, IL – October 18, 2017
Illiterate and incompetent management use harassment and bullying to get the desired work from employees. Carriers average 6 days a week, 10-12 hrs a day. Postmaster has worked new carriers for 13 days straight without a day off. Constantly threaten to fire or discipline employees for not moving fast enough, for being sick, injured, etc.
Management regularly engages in fraudulent practice of altering timecard clock rings to shave off overtime hours that employees have worked.
If you have any other job prospects don't work here. The carriers are great people to work with but management is a nightmare.
RCA (Former Employee) – Neenah, WI – October 18, 2017
The people are great and I really enjoy this job. However the cons out weigh the pros for me. There are either too many hours or too little. I have a family and most hours are during the weekend which take away from spending time with my children.
Supervisor Customer Service (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 17, 2017
When I first aspired to be a supervisor I wanted to make a difference in how employees were treated, because as a carrier I wasn't always treated well; and although I don't agree with the conduct, now I understand.
Rural Carrier Associate (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – October 17, 2017
Serious lack of none biased oversight has left the Post Office an arrogant mess. Poor communication. Daily threats of firing for things seasoned workers do everyday. (Not delivering mail, taking the day off w/o notice, deciding to go home without completing daily route without any notice, etc) Union has no power to compell Post Office to stick to regulations.
Lack of hours, undue work stress, poor management, lack of communication
City Carrier Assistant (Former Employee) – Westchester, NY – October 17, 2017
good stable job but with lots of work hours...physical hard work with lots of walking. Good physical exercise and management is also a bit on average. Not the best but is also ok to work with. Need to be punctual. Hardest day is when the weather is too hot or when it is snowing, you still have to go out there and delivery the mails and packages. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you get to know the customers and their appreciation.
lots of hours, great pay with lots of overtime paid
no time for day offs and high demanding attendance for the job, no private life to enjoy
Mail Carrier, mail clerk (Former Employee) – Ohio – October 17, 2017
The only good thing about working at the PO was the pay. They start you as a part time employee but work you like you are a full time employee with no benefits! And don’t even think about having a life outside of the PO cause you won’t have one. They definitely have their “favorites”. I got screwed out of 2 full time position working there. I wouldn’t recommend anyone working for this company! Management is horrible only looking out for themselves.
City Carrier Assistant (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – October 17, 2017
VERY unorganized management at the Kalamazoo facilities. I was surprised how messy the Drake Road post office was. Didn't receive any guidance or training from my supervisor once I left the "Academy" which only covered letter types. They basically handed me the mail truck keys and booted me out the door to deliver packages, in plain clothes, on a Sunday. I didn't even know what time to report to work the next day as the supervisors had all left by the time we were done with the deliveries.
Lack of direction and training from the supervisors
Fast paced and strenuous, great pay/benefits, and government perks
Mail Handler (Current Employee) – Allen Park, MI – October 17, 2017
Great place to work if your looking to make good money. Co workers are great and you have the option of joining the union. Only complaint is the only day to get things done is on a Sunday until you are hired in. The post office will be your life.
Pay is great, benefits, great co workers and government perks
City Carrier Assistant (Former Employee) – El Paso, TX – October 16, 2017
Extremely stressful/ time lines must be met no excuses/ rain sleet snow fire hurricane DOGS you must be willing to do it all/ great group of co workers/ part of a union/ stable job/ excellent income if willing to sacrifice personal life
